David J. Plodwick Obituary
David J. Plodwick

We are deeply saddened by the passing of our partner, father, grandfather, sibling, uncle and friend, David J. Plodwick. David died late in the evening of August 27th, 2017, after a battle with cancer.

Raised a proud Pennsylvania Polack, he crisscrossed the country from California to Michigan finally landing in the Seattle area where he found his home. A man who went from teaching to bartending to photography and back to teaching, his calling lay in showing the beauty of this world, whether it be nature itself or the nature of a person. He loved to lead classes and discussions and to help others think outside the box and outside of themselves.

Charisma, humor, wisdom and 'Frankisms' were all hallmarks of the wonderful love and light that David shared with those who crossed his path. Smiles brought him joy and he did his best to bring them out in those with whom he interacted, whether with silly jokes, a friendly conversation or his usual anecdotes. A giving person, he did what he could to help his fellow man, whether it was food, work, his company or his time.

A man who related more to the wisdom of Native Americans and stars in the sky, than in the words of modern man, he followed his own path and his own faith. He is now among the stars, exploring the universe, in the company of his beloved parents, enjoying our journeys until he is called on to his next.

David is survived by his loving wife, Jan DeRoos, his children Katie Rose Nahan and Annalise Sittser, as well as their respective spouses, Bradley Cleaver and John Sittser, and his grandson Peter David Sittser. David is also survived by his brother Conrad Plodwick and his sister Claudette George, and their respective spouses, Regina and Tom as well as their children Dawn Marie Chalk, Sarah Jennifer George and Jessica Fiore, and his grandniece and grandnephews. As well as his Ciocis, Isabel Haydock and Sylvia Stevens.

A Celebration of life will be held later this fall, for details or to reach the family please contact [email protected]

Live Long and Prosper.
